How a child plays, grows, learns, acts, speaks, moves…. all offers important cues in understanding a child’s development.
Child development is the predictable sequence of a child’s continuous growth. It is the process in a physical, language, cognitive, social and emotional context.
The pattern of a child’s growth and development helps us understand a child’s particular skills and behaviours. Nature and nurture (genes and environment) influence children’s development and learning. Developmental milestones is the age in which a child achieves a skill and enables you to track their growth.
“Taking their first steps, saying their first words, rolling over, smiling, blowing kisses, waving bye are all part of a child’s developmental milestones”
